The moment I've been waiting for EIGHT, count 'em EIGHT years has finally happened.

Ok, so maybe this won't come as a spoiler if you watched the season 8 finale of "How I Met Your Mother" last night,  but if you missed it and TiVoed it then probably you don't want to go any further than right about here.

For the past eight years, fans of How I Met Your Mother have tried to figure out who the mother is.  I don't know about you, but it drove me crazy.  Each time I thought I figured out who the mother was, the storyline changed and I realized the person I thought it was couldn't be.

On last night's season finale we FINALLY got a glimpse of "the mother."

Actress Cristin Milioti, known now only as the "Woman with Umbrella" is the mother.  If the name sounds familiar, it should.  Cristin has made cameo appearances in 30 Rock, The Good Wife, The Sopranos and more.

I'm sooooo excited.  Can't wait to see how the "Woman with Umbrella" is written into the show.
